Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Speaking of a belated April Fools Day story, how about publishing it on April 3rd?

Downing Street forced to deny `April Fools' story that Theresa May bought Irish holiday home

The Irish local newspaper that reported Theresa and Philip May had bought a holiday home in Ireland have revealed that the story was an April Fool's joke.

The big reveal came after 10 Downing Street was forced to deny the rumour as "totally untrue".

The Munster Express published the story on 3 April, two days after April Fool's Day, but the paper's John O'Connor told Irish radio that the joke remains valid.

The paper publishes weekly and hit newsstands late, catching several UK publications (including this one) off guard with the inaccurate story.
